The victim of a bad upbringing Luke has always wanted a family he could rely on His mother was often absent from his life and before CPS finally removed him from her care he ended up feeling rejected and abandoned often than not His foster father was loving and caring and introduced him to the concepts of love acceptance forgiveness and a real family His foster father s death a few years ago left Luke feeling abandoned and rejected all over again and so he leaves the church and immerses himself in work that is until he meets with widow Janie and her three children Janie has problems of her own in her life She is struggling to be the superwoman that does everything mother small business owner home maker and most importantly financially independent in the wake of her husband s massive debts He sees in her a realization of all his dreams of a perfect family come true when he needs it most she sees in him a distraction and an upset to her already chaotic and far from perfect life at a time when she needs it least What follows is a novel about forgiveness family and faithThis is a very strongly Christian novel There are strong themes about what to do with and how to approach a life with God There are prayers and bible verses uoted throughout and several discussions by the main characters about faith church and God All of the events in the book are viewed through this lense and some of the topics are a little controversial especially for a christian novel though the wording was always very discrete The topics covered in no particular order included child abuse and neglect pre marital sex children out of wedlock divorce teen pregnancy abortion foster care and adoption alcoholism underage drinking drug abuse gambling spousal abuse and domestic violenceThere were times though when the mother and daughter both nearly drove me up a wall Mostly for the same reasons They were both obstinate and head strong and they both desperately wanted independence at the expense of any familial relationships they might have otherwise engendered to their betterment In the end though the character was very realistically portrayed as too overworked to think about what she was doing and I appreciated that realism about her I could see how harmful being a superwoman was first hand in this bookI ended up giving this novel only three stars first off because there were several very glaring errors that an editor really should have caught I normally forgive the first three but everyone I see after that just detracts that much from my reading of it and there were at least half a dozen if not Second it is standard romance so the plot line followed a very standard formula that I was very familiar with Finally there is being stubborn and then there is being down right obstinate and I believe the heroine in this novel pretty solidly fell into the second category Yes pay people back when they do some yard work for you but if they break something on your property and replace it don t offer to pay for it to assuage your pride at that point you re just being pigheadedSo fans of romantic Christian fiction interested in a couple that seriously test their faith and rely heavily on prayer bible passages and heart felt faith filled discussions to see them through will enjoy this book at least to a degree Be prepared for the very real if tastefully worded depictions of the above listed controversial topics You will find all that and in this book that comes right down to at the very heart of it forgiveness
